Dear Neighbors,

On March 23rd the Village received a Memorandum for the Record (MFR) from the United States Army Corps of Engineers (ACOE) containing comments on the Village’s draft Public Access Plan for the Asharoken Storm Damage Reduction Project. To read the full memorandum, click here (Link Below). The Village is carefully reviewing the MFR and will be preparing a full response. The Village is waiting to get a tentatively selected plan showing the ACOE’s plan to restore the beach. Once Asharoken receives the plan I will invite the ACOE to present it to the village.

The ACOE’s comments were generally supportive of the plan especially since the ACOE agreed with the Village’s assumption of low recreational use. The ACOE is seeking additional information to support the assumption of low recreational use and the Village’s proposal not to have parking at the middle three access strips from the road to the beach. Second, the ACOE is requesting a modification of the agreement between the Town of Huntington and National Grid for the use of the boat ramp parking lot. Finally, the ACOE is looking for more definitive locations of the public access strips.

Linda and I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy Easter and Passover.


Mayor Greg Letica
